Dog Walking Policies

Booking and payment information

All invoices are sent on Sunday for that upcoming week’s service.  We also allow you the option to pay all at once at the beginning of the month for your package.  Whatever works for you!  Once you decide the days and time window, it will be the same throughout the week.

Minimum ( 3 per week ) 

Averages are calculated by the number of dog walks booked ÷ number of weeks from  Jan 1 or July 2.  These dates mark the middle of the year.  We remind you of averages so you can plan your schedule.  Our  commitment is for 3 walks a week on average.  We calculate averages every six month, it has to be at least 3.

Text update

After each walk our awesome dog walker will text you to confirm they visited your pup and loved them something proper. 

Our arrival window Policy

We like to allow a grace period of one hour for the walker to arrive for your session.  There might be inclement weather or other unanticipated delays.  So for example if your session is at 12:00 pm we kindly ask that you allow from 11:30 – 12:30 for the walker to come.

Meeting And Greeting new clients

All new clients are required to do a free meet and greet with the owner and the walker for your area.  That person will be your reliable consistent walker who’s there to build a routine with your dog.  We will be sure to bring proof of insurance as well as client references.  

Insurance 

We use Pet Sitters Associates LLC as our insurance carrier.

Solo walk – FEE

If your dog has to be walked solo due to location time or temperament, it is an additional $7 per walk.  If your dog can be walked with a buddy ( never more than 3 buddies on a walk ) then it helps us out, because we can walk more dogs per hour. 

Buddies

We don’t do pack walks unless SPECIFICALLY requested.  Maximum walking buddies are 3 in a group.
